Ask Sid: Prosecco Sweetness?

Question: I have been drinking more of the inexpensive sparkling Prosecco but finding most of them a bit too sweet for me. Your thoughts Sid?

Answer: Good point. Prosecco from Northern Italy is a sparkling white wine made mostly from the Glera grape but often has up to 15% of other grape varieties in a blend. Popular ones often do have a fair amount of residual sugar. They do have drier selections labelled as Brut (with 0-12 grams/litre sugar), but also Extra Dry (12-17) tried recently with a scallop dish plus pineapple & bacon, and called Dry (17-32) which is really sweet  often served with dessert. The hot breaking news is that for 2017 we will see the first release of some Extra Brut for those who prefer a much drier style of Prosecco. Watch out for it and try it!
